Holidays to Egypt
Once, Egypt holidays were restricted to visiting Cairo and cruises down the Nile. But with the development of the Red Sea Riviera, Egypt today means beach-front hotels, warm silvery beaches and crystal-clear waters as well. With the growth of tourism, last minute Egypt holidays are now more affordable than ever. We at Co-operative Travel have bargain holidays to Egypt’s most fashionable and sought after resorts, offering you the chance to catch some winter sun in one of the world’s most fascinating places.
Many travellers still equate Egypt package holidays with the Pyramids and temples of Luxor and Giza. Thanfkfully, last minute Egypt holidays to these places have never gone out of fashion and with a twin centre holiday it’s possible to take a Nile Cruise, visit the Valley of the Kings and still have time to top up your tan on the Red Sea Riviera beaches of Sharm El Sheikh! Alternatively, a Cairo Egypt holiday offers you the chance to take a camel safari to the Pyramids and Sphinx, and see the treasures in the world famous Cairo Museum. With over 5000 years of history to uncover, cheap Egypt holidays in Cairo are always a popular choice, especially when combined with a trip on a traditional felucca from Luxor – built on the site of the ancient city of Thebes, no less.
When it comes to low-budget late deals, Egypt has it all. The majority of Egypt package holidays are taken in the Red Sea resorts of Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh, and neighbouring purpose-built resorts like Makadi bay, Taba Heights and El Gouna. However, even here, an Egypt holiday offers the chance of some cultural interaction. Many of the modern beach-front hotels hide old towns that have stood for centuries. Some, like Nuweiba, are mentioned in the Bible!
Although blisteringly hot in the summer months, Egypt is the ideal destination for families and couples seeking winter sunshine. From Marsa Alam to Taba Heights, we at Coop Travel have last minute Egypt holidays which will inspire you to return again and again.
